The recipe, as it's written, is a great basic fudge recipe. I was looking for an "old fashioned" recipe, without marshmallows or sweetened condensed milk & this was THE one! I did try substituting powdered sugar a couple of times like some other reviewers suggested... but each time, the fudge didn't set properly. But when I tried the granulated sugar (as recipe suggests), it turned out beautifully. Smooth... not grainy & set up really well. I didn't place the granulated sugar batches in the fridge though until AFTER it had set. Not sure if that made the difference or not.
For my best batch of fudge, I reduced the sugar to 2 3/4 c. & increased the peanut butter to 1 cup. I used reduced fat Jif & it made no difference at all... also used dark cocoa instead of regular and it was not only delicious, but the dark color made it look even more scrumptious! Thanks for a great fudge recipe... I will definitely be making this one again!
